Students at Cedar Springs High School all got to be part of something special before leaving for spring break—a lip dub that involved all 900 students at the school.
According to TV Production teacher Justin Harnden, it was 100 percent student filmed, planned and directed.
Harnden said that a discussion in their CSTV (Advanced television production) class at the beginning of the year got the idea going for the lip dub, and once they got into the third trimester, senior Alex Hughes took the idea even further. “He got everyone in the school involved, and then, with the help of junior Bryan Taylor, organized the whole event,” explained Harnden.
The video was done during Cedar Pride week, and was put out to showcase the pride that students have in the school. The lip syncers were members of various school clubs and sports. Filming was done by Joel Carter, Cody Hoogerheide, and Derrick Liggett, with Hughes and Taylor directing.
Harnden said they had 10 full runs with the singers, many more times through with just the directors planning the route, and the only time they had everyone involved was for the filming, right before their Cedar Pride assembly on Thursday, April 3, the day before spring break began.
The video was online on their youtube channel by 4:30 p.m. that day, and had over 12,000 views in less than 24 hours. They currently have just over 20,000.
